Hello people, is there a way to get iOS 5 untethered jailbreak on iPhone 4? I recently updated my iPhone 4 to iOS 5 and right now I am thinking to jailbreak it and then install some cool iOS Notification Center widgets. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Anyway, while waiting for the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak, you can get a semi-tethered jailbreak after jailbreaking your iPhone on iOS 5 using Redsn0w 0.9.9b7 – which is a tethered jailbreak. To get a semi-tethered jailbreak, of course you will need to jailbreak your iPhone. You can download Redsn0w 0.9.9b7 from here and the step-by-step guide on how to use Redsn0w 0.9.9b7 can be found on this blog post. Once completely jailbroken, just launch Cydia and download SemiTether app from the bigboss or semitether repo. You can check this link to know more about iOS 5 SemiTether. If you are new to jailbreaking scene, you can follow the step-by-step guide posted below on how to install SemiTether app:
Step 1: Launch Cydia app from the Springboard of your jailbroken iOS device.

Step 4: Then enter the following URL as Cydia/APT URL
Then tap on Add Source button.
Step 5: Now, wait while Cydia updates its sources database. Once done, tap on Return to Cydia button and then tap on Search tab at the bottom. Type SemiTether on the search tab and search for it. Then select SemiTether from the search results.
Step 6: Tap on the Install button on the top-right to install Icy on your iOS device.
Step 7: Once installed, tap on Restart Springboard button to exit Cydia.
